I'm starting to work with Michael again. He's a great guy and an amazing life coach. He's helped me through many of my projects in the last few years. He wrote an email to me this evening, and was really happy with my response to him. I decided to include portions of it here:
From: Michael VavricekIt seems like I want so many things. I want my book to get published by someone that's not me. I want my next CD to come out and have people that aren't me use it to make them—and me—enough money to live off of.
I want to be living off my passive income within five years. I want this income to come from royalties on music, income from stock investments, and income from real estate investments.
I want to live up to the greatness that my friends and family keep telling me I should be living up to. I keep discovering little bits of me that feel like I don't deserve success at the level I dream of. I want to move past this, and on to that level of success—and beyond.
But, the thing I've realized is that I have an inherent belief that I'm not worthy unless I do lots of stuff, finish projects, create things, and so on. However, this isn't a very good way to think. (Although it's a great motivating factor, and probably one of the most important ingredients to any success I've had so far.)
Wouldn't it be better for me to believe I'm worthy as I am—right out of the box?
But, I'm scared that if I believe that then I'll stop being motivated to do so many things. What will happen to my projects?
There probably isn't enough time in one life to do all these things. But, I'm prepared to die trying. Might as well die doing something fun.
He wrote more—asking me more questions. I haven't had time to answer them all yet. But, I can't wait to see what else I'll write. This is exciting!
